2012 Product Bash Sketch Notes

About a hundred product professionals and entrepreneurs hobnobbed at Brainmates’ annual end-of-year Product Bash at the Hotel CBD this year to hear the panel of three Australian entrepreneurs discuss, ‘Is There a Place for Entrepreneurship in Product Management?’

The panelists were:

  • Mike Cannon-Brookes, Co-Founder and ‘Chief Atlas’ at Atlassian
  • Simon Cariss, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President – Innovation at PageUp People
  • Nick Gonios, Founder, SMOOTH & Co

The talented Melbourne-based UX Designer Matt Magain captured some of the best quotes of the
night by drawing the sketch notes below.
